Siberian huskies, extreme attitude

Be sure you can tolerate the Siberian Husky’s personality before adopting one. They are great dogs, in their own special way, which is not for everyone. The purpose of living in Artic conditions is why the Siberian Husky acts like he does. Despite their bossiness, Siberian Huskies prefer to follow than lead. Never hit or abuse your Siberian Husky.

Siberian Huskies are incredibly handsome dogs. They look like tame wolves, often with ice blue eyes or even odd-colored eyes. They are unmistakable and attention-getting. No wonder they have been one of the most popular breeds of dogs ever in the Western world. However, they are also abandoned in the thousands every year. To keep yourself from abandoning a Siberian Husky, please read as much Siberian Husky information as you can, especially about their personalities.

Siberian Huskies were bred to be tough, self-reliant and to run for miles and miles through the tundra every day. They were not bred to curl up on the living room rug and behave without question. If you have never had a dog before, do not get a Siberian Husky. If you have physical problems, do not get a Siberian Husky. If you live in an apartment, RV or other small home, do not get a Siberian husky.

Siberian Huskies do not make good guard dogs, although they can put up a spectacular racket when they want to. Siberian Huskies have been bred to be friendly with all people, so they do not care about whether someone is friend or foe. But Siberian Huskies were also bred to be tough and to be extremely intelligent. Huskies often had to fend for themselves in extreme wintry conditions that would quickly kill most other breeds of dogs. Siberian Huskies still have one foot in the wild. It is unlikely that will ever be bred out of them.

Siberian Huskies are wary of strangers and tend to avoid them. They will often seem like they are either ignoring you or are staring at you as if to say, “You’re a complete idiot and I know it”. Huskies and Husky-types are considered hard to train, so you must be patient and persistent. Huskies are big, strong dogs that can quickly figure out how to be the boss if you don’t act like the boss.

Even though all dogs take their own time in learning anything, it generally is agreed in reliable breed information sources that Siberian Huskies take longer to train than most dogs. You must act confidently and speak firmly when giving commands in order to get their attention. Siberian Huskies will quickly bully a timid person, because they can see that a timid person does not deserve to lead a dog pack.

Siberian Huskies do not suffer fools gladly, but they will be loyal to the death for those they decide to follow. Siberian Huskies are not comfortable being leaders, despite their bossiness. They are more relaxed, less prone to loosing weight and engaging in bad behavior when they know their place. You must earn their loyalty through body language, persistence and positive reinforcement. This dog does not respect force or abuse of any kind. They either will defend themselves or (most likely) will become permanently frightened.
